FaZe Clan’s Faze5 recruitment challenge brought unprecedented hype to the community as for the first time an esports organization of that stature was conducting a recruitment challenge open to all. The best part being this was not limited to just big shot gamers but lesser-known content creators are also welcome to try their luck.
On December 27, Faxuty was welcomed into FaZe Clan after he came first in the recruitment challenge. He didn’t make it this far out of thin air rather by streaming religiously on Twitch that earned him near about 50000 subs with a Twitch partnership and maintains a healthy YouTube channel which isn’t as active as his Twitch.
